Winter Ladder

Every year towards the end of September we invite all members to take part in the ‘Winter Social League’ – the format is mixed doubles and weather permitting each participant could have two different partners!

This is a fun league to enable new and existing members to perhaps partner other members they may not normally meet.
We will have 2 rounds of competition beginning in October and running through to March. It is a good way to keep your tennis going throughout the winter months and to allow the bar to stay open!  This year and subsequent years one Lady and one Gentleman will be presented with a Michael Waite Memorial Trophy chosen by the organisers based on THEIR contribution to the competition over the 2 rounds.

The format of the league is as follows:

1. Court Usage

The Tennis Committee has agreed that players participating in the Winter League can put 2 coins in for lights which will enable one hour of play. If after one hour, there are no other players waiting for a court then play can continue. No restrictions exist for playing in daylight hours.

2. Match Play

Each match shall consist of 15 games played. The scoring for the match is outlined below:

How to Score Points

  • One point is earned for turning up.
  • One point is earned for each 5 games won. (e.g. 10-5 = 2 points, 1 point, 8-7 = 1 point, 1 point)
  • One additional point is awarded to the winners League match results should recorded on the sheets pinned up in the Pavilion.
  • Remember there are only 2 rounds and points make prizes.
